Beautiful sunlight fills almost every corner of the stunning 12,000 sq.-ft space that is Beacon Dermatology. And it’s not by accident.

The clinic was designed to incorporate natural light because it is optimal for examining the skin.

Beacon Dermatology is a state-of-the-art medical, surgical, cosmetic and laser centre with five board-certified dermatologists.

“We wanted to build something that no one has ever done,” says founder and co-director, Dr. Andrei Metelitsa.

“We probably have the biggest assembly of devices and treatments in one centre in the country.”

Each dermatologist specializes in their own niche of difficult-to-treat skin conditions which means, as a collective, they give patients access to expertise in areas ranging from skin cancer to psoriasis, adult acne, pregnancy-related skin conditions, eczema, hair disorders and pediatric dermatology.

The centre is unique in its focus on clinic research which allows patients to be treated with exciting, new dermatological medications and therapies, prior to those options even hitting the market.

“We have 16 clinical trials ongoing as we speak,” says Metelitsa.

Using the FotoFinder, a specialized photography system, doctors at the centre can tap into mole mapping technology which monitors moles on a patient’s body over time using the same applied science NASA uses to find stars.

Dr. Metelitsa stresses he and his colleagues are “physicians first” but says being experts in cosmetic medicine means that when there is an intersection of medical with the aesthetic in a patient – they can offer both.

Beacon Dermatology also has a number of subclinics: Urgent Skin Cancer Clinic, Women’s Dermatology Clinic, Acne Clinic, Hair Loss Clinic and Wart Clinic. It also offers cosmetic medicine options for patients which include Botox®/filler, CoolSculpting for fat reduction and truSculpt Flex for muscle sculpting.
